Dr.Adam CatonDirector of Operations
I was born and raised in Arizona, with a few years spent growing up in Southern California. I am fortunate to be the Director of Podiatry for IHMS of Arizona as I am surrounded by a truly compassionate set of healthcare providers. Most recently I came from Tucson, AZ where I completed my three year reconstructive foot and ankle surgery residency in Podiatry at the Southern Arizona Veteran’s Administration Healthcare System. I received my medical training from Midwestern University School of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery in Glendale, AZ and was the founder of their American Academy of Podiatric Practice Management chapter.
Currently I live in the East Valley with my small zoo. Consisting of two ferrets and two dogs. It’s an interesting and fun mix of daily activities with this furry group. When I get free time I enjoy motorsports, football games and anything that makes me laugh or smile.
I was attracted to the field of medicine because it allows me to constantly meet and help new people. It’s amazing how much can truly be accomplished just by taking the time to listen and understand the real concern to my patients. Whether I’m offering my medical opinion or performing simple procedures, I really do enjoy the reward of a happily treated patient.
I was born and raised in Houston, TX. After college at The University of Texas at Austin, I received my medical education from Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine in Ohio. I then attended Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth, NJ for my reconstructive foot and ankle surgical residency training emphasizing in limb salvage and wound care. It was during my residency where I became experienced in all of the conservative and surgical scopes of Podiatry.
My passion for medicine began at a very early age when all I wanted to do was help those in need. I constantly volunteered at hospitals and shelters growing up and was part of Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) during high school, winning the city of Houston championship in competition my sophomore year. During college, I was published in a research article at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX which further motivated me into pursuing my interest in medicine.
Most people are nervous when seeing the Doctor, so I try and make the setting as comfortable and relaxing as possible to ensure their mind is at ease. It is in my nature to treat patients as if they were my own family and believe in putting all of my effort into making sure everyone is treated medically and respectfully with care.
I enjoy spending quality time with my family. I love food, sports, traveling, movies, technology, and have a passion for cars.
